In this blog, Clive Harrison discusses why the contingent charging model for DB pension transfers is not working, how the FCA are now responding and what this means for your members.
My name is Clive and I am a pensions actuary with over 10 years' experience.
I advise a wide range of trustees and pension scheme sponsors, with particular experience in helping clients manage their PPF levies, negotiate funding valuations and with their financial reporting requirements.
I am a liability management specialist and I have helped a number of large schemes reduce costs and risks by implementing and communicating new member options.
Clive repeatedly provides excellent feedback and assistance on a number of technical matters.
